Lavamat 6955 sensorlogic - carries on filling until water overflows from soap tray

The washing machine is not blocked and does not have too many suds and it pumps out water OK but when it comes to fill up for the rinses it carries on filling until the water overflows from the top of the washer. This is not suds just plain water. If you put it on spin or empty then it will spin and empty, but floods when it fills up as if it doesn't know what the water level should be. Sometimes it says F1 then after a while continues on with the cycle.

Water does not drain from dispenser into tub/drum fast enough

pull out the dispenser,check inside where the dispenser goes into,i found in two washers the white circle piece that's inside the cap to detergent,when water would go in the cap would block the fill tube,if you checked the dispenser and water flows through you have something blocking the fill tube,hopefully the washer and dryer are not stacked,you might have to take the top lid off to get at the fill tube or fill hose to clear it.good luck with your washer

I have a AEG lavamat 6955 sensorlogic front loader I had the motor changed 5 years ago. The washing machine still works but the drum is tight and does not turn. Even when the machine is off. It is...

Could be that the Inner Drum Spindle is broken, this is a 3 arm spider-ish bracket that holds the inner drum. To test this theory, see if you can lift the inner drum up & down from the door side, you will be able to feel if it is broken.

Hope this helps.

your machine is draining too slowly. When it initiates a drain cycle, the water level switch is sensing the water level is still too high after 60 seconds so the computer1.gif stops and generates this fault code.

Here are the things to check;

* Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or inked.
* Check Wire Harness connectors to the Drain Pump, Pressure Switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU)
* Check/Clean Drain Pump Filter of foreign objects
* Check for Drain Pump Failure
* Check the Inlet Valve for proper shut off
* Check the Pressure switch for proper operation

AEG Lavamat 72640 Front Load Washer

are the holes that spray out the water partially blocked? if so the water will spray out at every angle filling all the tray slots. try popping out the soap tray and cleaning above it with a stiff washing up brush and then reducing the water pressure by turning the tap off a bit.

LG Front Loading Washer overflows at detergent dispenser

you mean where you put the regular HE soap in? That slot is normal to overflow. The water carries the soap down (Lift the little doohickie up, it's removable for powder deterg.), and it carries it all the way to the tub...Unless i don't get it...but I'm reading the phrase "Its like the water will not go down to the tub.", and it makes me think the whole tray is overfilling with water..if this is the case, I can't help you, but filling over of the Main HE Soap tray is normal. (Just a little, if the whole thing starts filling uncontrollably, hit the power button.)
